Bollywood star Aamir Khan on new Indian satirical movie

Peepli Live is a new Indian film which takes a very serious issue - farmer suicide in rural India - and uses it as a departure point for a satire which pokes fun at the Indian news media, government bureaucrats, and opportunistic politicians.

The film was produced by Bollywood star Aamir Khan, who told the BBC's Tom Brook what attracted him to the movie.
